gallup and from others, it shows that republicans are fired up about this election. the liberal democrats are not. they're not enthusiast about it. when you have races that are decided by a couple hundred votes in a house that can be very, very close, that matters. >> smith: does the white house get this? does the white house understand this? or do you feel any sense of panic or concern or.... >> they get it. there's panic. there's concern. people are not nuts if they think that obama wants... there's this theory that obama wants republicans to win because it's easier to have a divided government. they're nuts. obama knows you have only so much time to do big things in congress. he needs the power of having democratic majorities. the problem is there's just not much that you can do. you can have a big money edge. but when you're dealing with the economic reality that we have, it's very difficult. people are mad. people want change. >> smith: the president is going to talk on wednesday and talk about the things that we just had the conversation with our economic panel, the idea of resipdin

gallup asks in its weekly tracking poll whether voters prefer a generic, democratic candidate for congress or a generic republican candidate in this year's elections and we report as we did last week that they prefer the generic republican by ten points, a big, big margin, look. it's right there. that is interesting. that is the kind of thing that drives incessant political chatter. but its usefulness as a predictor of what will happen in the elections is easily over stated as demonstrated by the fact that just one week after that gallup poll that survey last week showed a ten-point gap and now shows the generic candidates suddenly tied. within days the republicans' perceived lead magically evaporated or not. maybe it had something to do with the completely hypothetical question. maybe last week's numbers were a statistical anomaly or maybe registered voters were surveyed instead of likely voters, people more likely to show up and vote. here is another poll from gallup that takes a more useful snap shot of american politics right now. this graph measures enthusiasm about votin
and let's look at the poll numbers, right now. the latest "gallup poll" shows republicans with their biggest lead ever, in the generic question, who will you vote for, 51% to 41% and gallup also found republicans are twice as likely to be very enthusiastic about voting in november than democrats are. do you really think -- i know you will do that, talking about george w. bush or herbert hoover, is going to overcome what people feel? >> well, most of what i will talk about is what the democrats have done in the last two years and what they plan to do going forward and contrasting it with what the republicans had said they will document so, it's not a backyard-looking speech, it is a forward-looking one because americans have a choice to make in november and can pick the team that is doing the heavy lifting, at tough times, and to take the shrinking economy and get it growing again, or, can pick a team that has been standing in the way and is pledging to do things, with social security as a ponzi scheme and there is 10 to 15 marquis candidates on the republican side who are
